The loss of a loved one is felt this time of year

Dear editor,

Wow, it’s hard to believe the Christmas season is upon us!

Right now, people are happy. Happy and feeling joyous and kindness is everywhere!

Christmas carols are pretty cool, especially classic country ones. People are hoping for a white Christmas as well.

However, as people are going their merry way, many forget that Christmas time is a miserable and sad time of the year for many of us. There are those like myself who lost a loved one, so Christmas is so very painful and sad. My wife Rosie absolutely loved Christmas time and we would spoil one another from the start of December to Christmas day.

This’ll be my first Christmas without my angel.

So as you’re celebrating this joyous time of year, say a little prayer for those who are hurting and sad.

Thank you and Merry Christmas everyone!
